Best Answer

when someone is manic from bi-polar disorder it is because their body has released ALL their feel good horomones at one time.....the only problem with that is once they have used them all up then they have no more left and that is why they crash down into a depression. the medication helps to release them a little bit at a time. if you dont have a problem with the depression that comes after u have used up all your feel good horomones then dont take the meds.

This is something that should be discussed with a psych doctor, who would explain how bipolar medications work. Bipolar mood disorder can be very debilitating and requires medication to stabilise the extreme highs and lows of the illness. If it is any help to you, a close relative of mine has been on lithium for 15 years and it completely changed her life from one of misery, to one of being able to manage and run her life well. This illness should NOT be managed without the help of a doctor. If a person had Parkinson's Disease or Multiple Sclerosis, they would seek the help of a doctor. So it should be with bipolar mood disorder.
